NEW YORK – New York City doorman Richie Randazzo had said he wouldn't quit his day job after winning a $5 million lottery, and he didn't. He got fired.
A spokesman for the union representing apartment building workers says Randazzo notified the union's grievance center on Tuesday that he had been shown the door.
The exclusive Park Avenue apartment building where Randazzo worked is run by building management company Brown Harris Stevens. The company did not immediately return a call.
Randazzo made $40,000 a year as a doorman. He began taking in another $65,000 every three months after hitting the jackpot May 2.
Randozzo's father says his son got a letter that did not specify the reason for his discharge. He declined to give his name and said his son was not home.
